– Do we have a “medical Edward Snowden?” (Jon Rappoport, Aug 20, 2014):
Update: US Congressman stonewalled by the CDC:
As I get ready to post this article, I have a reply to a request I made to Florida Congressman Bill Posey. I asked for a statement regarding the growing charge that the CDC is covering up an autism-vaccine connection. Here is what Congressman Posey has to say on this subject:
“When it comes to our children, we must make sure that any intervention is as safe as possible, including vaccinations. Scientific integrity is a key component to giving that assurance. I will continue to press for a full understanding of the evidence in this situation. The CDC has refused for more than six months to hand over documents I requested concerning this issue. That is not the type of response we expect from our government.”
Congressman stonewalled. He asked the CDC for data and the CDC refused. Refusal=something to hide.
Why else would the CDC ignore Posey’s request? What right does the CDC have to conceal data about vaccines and autism?
In my previous article today, I highlighted a secret CDC whistleblower, who has anonymously asserted that the CDC intentionally covered up the vaccine-autism connection for a decade.
In the last few hours, I’ve discovered a few facts about him.
He is a research scientist.
Surprisingly, he still works for the CDC.
He is seriously considering coming forward soon, revealing his name, and speaking to the press.
The CDC hasn’t yet contacted him to explain himself, hasn’t yet fired him or taken any action against him.
But the CDC undoubtedly knows who he is. It’s no mystery. From what this whistleblower has revealed so far, the CDC would easily be able to identify him.
The whistleblower knows this.
He has an attorney. It’s not clear whether he can obtain whistleblower status and protection.
I urge him to come forward, reveal his name, and talk. I urge him to tell everything he knows. The public needs to hear his evidence.
And at this point, his best protection is disclosure. Stand up. Tell the whole truth.
There are other researchers at the CDC who would be severely impacted by his disclosure. Like the whistleblower, they covered up the vaccine-autism connection. Unlike him, they haven’t admitted it.
If this CDC scientist steps forward into the light, he could cause a firestorm. The CDC would immediately, of course, reject his claims.
They would say something like this: “Yes, it’s true that, ten years ago, we studied autism and the MMR vaccine, but the whole thrust and pattern of the data we compiled had to be considered, not just one piece. We did look at all the data, and we reached the correct conclusion. There is no evidence that the MMR vaccine causes autism.”
The CDC would count on their allies in the press to swallow this statement whole and treat the story as a minor blip on the radar.
They would count on their allies to ignore what the whistleblower is actually saying: that in a CDC 2004 study, a whole raft of significant and damning data was thrown out and ignored, thus making it seem there was no vaccine-autism connection.
It’s also quite possible that the CDC will try to personally discredit the whistleblower, through character attacks. Is he ready for this? Will he stand up to it?
He needs to come forward now, to allay any suspicion that he was prepped to release false information as if it were true, and then ensnare vaccine critics.
In this vicious game, anything is possible.
Half-admissions won’t carry the day. Half-light and half-shadow won’t work.
If he can deliver the goods in person, for all to see, the resulting scandal would travel up into the highest reaches of the CDC, hitting executives who have served there for the past 10 years.
It could move higher into the Department of Health and Human Services, and even the Congress and the White House, present and past.
And then there are the vaccine manufacturers. They too would face very specific questions.
Having written on these matters for many years, I’m not under the delusion that major heavy hitters would do jail time.
But once the match is lit, you never know what will happen.
The CDC has insisted, time after time, that they’ve proved vaccines have nothing to do with autism.
But out in the land of the Web, there are thousands and thousands of people who know better and can speak and write the truth.
It’s up to him now.
If as reported, he feels great shame and remorse for covering up the damning data and contributing to much human harm and damage, he has an option.
He can pull himself together, say his name, say what he knows, down to the last detail, and say who at the CDC insisted that lies be told.
He can burn down all those lies.
He can break through and acquaint the public with what it’s like to hear the truth from a government-agency employee.
